Sync comments between Service Management and Software

We have Jira Software and Jira Service Management. I currently have an automation configured where if someone opens a ticket via our helpdesk portal to report a software bug it will open a ticket in Jira Software and Link to the two tickets together. 


When we're trying to do now is sync the comments between the two tickets. So if someone adds a comment to the ticket in Jira Software can it automatically update the JSM ticket with the same comment the Software developer entered in the Jira Software ticket and vice versa. Is this possible?

Hello @Daniel Roig,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

It’s possible to use an automation rule to copy the comments from the linked tickets.

I just tested here and it works. When a comment is added on the Jira Software ticket, it will add a comment to Jira Service Management ticket and vice versa.

Please, take your time to test and let us know how it goes.

Kind regards,

yes, just build a global automation rule that does exactly that step by step. It is almost self-explanatory.

Choose "comment is created" as a trigger and afterwards a condition "linked issue" that shrinks the possible triggers to the related tickets you create with your other rule and choose "create comment" as the action and enter this in the text field {{comment.body}}


This will copy the last comment of the body of the related ticket to the ticket.

I tried this and all it does and add the same comment to the existing ticket. It doesnt copy the comment over to the linked issue
